ECARS: Reminder and Exemptions

March Air Reserve Base is in an enhanced smog area requiring cars to have biennial smog testing, unless they qualify for a smog exemption. To ensure that we are compliant with the regulations, March ARB has implemented the ECARS self-certification system.

Vehicles registered in areas subject to the biennial smog certification program are required to submit evidence of a smog certification every other renewal period. All Federal Employees driving on March ARB, including active-duty personnel, are required to self-certify even if your home of record is in another state.

Owners of vehicles six or less model years old will pay an annual smog abatement fee for the first six registration years instead of being required to provide a biennial smog certification.

Does my vehicle qualify for a smog exemption?

Smog inspections are required unless your vehicle is:

• Hybrid

• Gasoline powered 1975 year model or older

• Diesel powered 1997 year model and older or with a • • Gross Vehicle Weight rating

• GVWR of more than 14,000 lbs

• Electric

• Natural gas powered with a GVWR rating of more than 14,000 lbs

• Motorcycle

NOTE: You are still required to self-certify with ECARS even if your car is exempt.

If you have any questions please call Paul Pitman at (951)-655-5062 or E-mail at 452amw.ecars@us.af.mil
